Every Sunday I'll be posting a little used or very obscure word I've discovered in Noah Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language. I hope you'll find the words interesting and possibly entertaining. Maybe you can even try using one in a writing exercise.
Please post a comment if you HAVE heard the word before and especially if you've used it in a story or in a recent conversation. If you have any suggestions, please email me or you can direct message me on Twitter.
And now the first word in the series:
blandiloquence - fair, mild, flattering speech.
